Former Prime minister and Former Central Bank CEO, Mr. David Oddson, is now one of two editors of the Icelandic newspaper, Morgunbladid.

Morgunbladid
(MBL) sacked the former editor, because he did not share the view of
the owners about being against joining the EU. MBL owners are against joining the EU, and MBL also sacked today about forty employees, including many who had worked there for many years.

Þóra Kristn Ásgeirsdóttir, reporter at MBL, and also the chairman of the Reporters Union, was sacked today.
She
was quoted today, saying that she does not like the
changing of the MBL to a party paper, to protect special interests for
certain people in the Independence party.

The other newspaper is Frettabladid, and it is owned and controlled by Jon Asgveir Johannesson, owner of many companies in Iceland and Europe.

It will be interesting to see how the papers, Frettabladid and MBL, will follow news and to see who is controlling the papers.
